ArcheAge offers name change service, postpones name reset

    
13
If you’re sick of your character’s name in ArcheAge yet have too much time on that toon to consider rerolling, you now have a way out of this terrible predicament. Starting yesterday, players can use a name change service to swap out “xXLordDeathStrikeXx” for something a little more awesome.

The name change service isn’t free, of course; players will be charged 1,400 credits to use it. There’s also one more condition attached: You can only change your name once every 30 days.

Trion Worlds did notify players that it won’t be releasing long-dormant names until later this month: “The team continues to work to make sure that everything is in place for the name reset to be performed. Some of these final changes require a major update to be performed on the game (as the in-game name change prompt needs some updated text) and so we’ll be releasing the name reset along with Update 2.9 on May 31st.”

Damonvile Zariarn Janio2 Yep and even when something totally positive takes place, you’ll find these same people putting their 2 cents about how wrong they are about it.
If I followed the advice of comment sections of gaming articles, I would never play any MMOs.

NobleNerd Zariarn Janio2    I said, “very few have ever released old names.”  I am aware that some companies do release names but many do not.
Anyhow, ff it’s anything like RIFT, they sell a scroll which can be used anytime after purchase.

If this is what they’re offering then this will give the player a chance to wait till they release the update.  If not, a simple solution is to wait to buy the name change after the update.

Bannex19 Matter of opinion and mostly hype.  From my experience with other gamers in general that rail on Trion usually have senseless reason or very little credibility.  Credibility meaning that they haven’t even played the game they’re railing on.  This comes from forums, gaming sites, and various other places where comment farming is a religion.

Zariarn Janio2 I believe even WoW released dormant names a while back (could be wrong on that one), but there are other MMOs that have released old account names… especially since the f2p change for business models.

I see nothing wrong with charging for name change, most MMOs have this. What I see as a huge red flag is the fact that the release of old names/accounts is delayed and needs a “huge” update to the game to accomplish it! 

I will have my popcorn at hand for the sh*t storm of fail when the update goes live….. just incase you know…. because…. when has Trion ever implemented a major update in ArcheAge without a storm?

Ever since they announced name change service is coming, number of scam attempts and scamming increased by a lot. Game like Archeage should never have name change service. Name and reputation in games like AA is very important, some people who built up bad reputation over the course of game time now has the opportunity to change name and go to a new server without anyone being able to notify the new server about their notoriety.

aldristavan I feel it’s a bit lacking without a number, though. xXLordDeathStrike666Xx to make it extra evil.
